Before it’s too late. . .

Mark your calendars for Monday, August 31st at 11 a.m. That’s the date of the OMB Prehearing which is taking place in the Banquet Hall of the North Kawartha Community Centre – a space that can accommodate more than 250 people!

Let’s fill the room and send the OMB and the developer a very clear message: the Fraser Wetlands are no place for a condominium development!
